Bug #2531: camcontrol fails to disable APM

Author: m.lombardi85
Status: New
Priority: Normal
Target version: 

I installed dragonfly BSD on an AMD64 laptop but I have a problem.

The hard disk is continuously spinning up and down every few seconds;
on FreeBSD I normally execute the following command to disable APM

#camcontrol cmd ad0 -c "EF 85 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00"

but unfortunately it fails on dragonfly with the following error message:

camcontrol: error sending command
